Having problems with your Eureka 2961AVZ Bagless Upright Vacuum ?

My eureka 2961avz bagless vacuum has no suction

\015 I've checked for any clogs and can't find one and the filter is clean and I've emptied the vacuum of any dirt.\015

Answers :

The machine is great for picking up what others leave behind
but terrible for cleaning a dirty carpet
the filter cup is so small that the vacuum is useless for for any serious cleaning.

there is a round filter above the dirt cup, You have re reach in where you can't see and turn it counter clockwise and pull it down. That is the favorite place for dirt to hide, and the instructions are vague.

Get another vacuum to clean with, then after the floors look clean, use the Eureka. You will be amazed how much dirt it collects. Just do NOT try to use the Eureka on a dirty carpet.
Usually clogs are in the dirt inlet by the brush roll, or in the hose. Take the hose off from the bottom and see if there is suction, if not, then the hose is clogged. If suction there, then it is lower. Also is the brush roll turning, if not, that could be your problem.

My eureka vacuum won't suction and starts to smoke when I try to use it. It sounds like it is suctioning when I first turn it on, but after about 20 seconds it begins to smell like burning and does not suction at all. I have tried cleaning and unclogging the filter and everything. It's bagless so I don't need a new bag.
